Employment Discrimination: Course Plus

This course supplements Employment Discrimination (Law 232), in which students must be concurrently enrolled to participate. Half of the weekly sessions will employ a traditional seminar format designed to allow students to explore in greater detail many of the policy issues underlying employment discrimination law, including scholarly critiques of existing doctrine. The other sessions will utilize experiential learning techniques crafted to familiarize students with real-world challenges faced by lawyers practicing employment discrimination law. Using problems and simulations drawn from recent cases, students will be asked, among other things, to engage in fact investigation, to develop litigation strategies, to draft litigation documents, and to develop employment policies that may be utilized by employees and employers. The class meets weekly for one hour.
